There are currently 3 City parking garages, 5 City lots and 949 meters in downtown Billings, with a total of 3,310 parking spots (prior to diagonal parking installation). The City has completed the diagonal parking expansion plan, has paved the former Arcade Bar lot for free parking and has plans for an addition to the Park 2 garage, all of which has or will contribute a large number of additional spaces for downtown business owners, employees and patrons to utilize. Also, in 2014, the Empire Marketplace is scheduled to open, which will add much-needed additional parking to Downtown Billings.
The Downtown Parking Strategic Plan is set for August 5-8, 2014. There will be two opportunities for stakeholders to meet and share feedback with panelists, so please consider joining the conversation during one or more of the following meeting times:
- Wednesday, August 6 from 8:30–10:00 AM: Introduction to the project and meet the Parking Expert Advisory Panel
- Thursday, August 7 from 6:00–8:00 PM: Parking Expert Advisory Panel to present preliminary recommendations
